Noted Mountains historian John Low will launch Keith Painter's latest book, 'Fifty Blue Mountains Openings - Tracks, Lookouts, Monuments... and a few surprises' on Saturday, November 9 at 10am at the Blue Mountains History Centre, 99 Blaxland Road, Wentworth Falls.
Keith Painter has lived in the Blue Mountains and Bathurst for almost 50 years.
He is the author and publisher of the Pocket Pal Blue Mountains bush walking guides, which have introduced many people to the tracks developed for day walkers throughout the mountains.
Keith has also written a number of books focusing on local history, including 'The Chert Bubble' and 'Padley of the Pedestal'.
This new book examines 50 significant Blue Mountains events and ceremonies and includes over 280 illustrations. It describes the people who took part, the documented records as well as current views of the events.
Some historic photos in the book have never been published before.
